Walk the Labyrinth
In Solitude and Community
COME WALK THE EARTH AND LISTEN TO GOD
A slow and meditative reading of a scripture or sacred text. A reading made more with the heart than with the mind with no practical aim but simply to allow oneself to be impregnated with the word of God. We are invited to go beyond a rapid study or quick exercise to arrive at a deeper understanding of the unity of our lived experience of our interior attitude and life’s daily activities allowing ourselves to be questioned, challenged, ad formed through Lectio and all elements and encounters through the day. We listen to God to carry the contemplative practice of the Presence of God into all activities of the day.
A labyrinth is a tool for prayer whereby a person follows a path in prayerful silence to a centre. It is a living representation of our life journey from birth to death to new life in God. People use the labyrinth for prayer in several ways. For some it is a simple walk to a centre in silence to help the mind find peace in anxious thoughts. For others it is an intentional search for resolution to an issue they are facing. Prayer labyrinths come in many shapes and sizes. They all follow one clearly marked path. Unlike a maze, there are no barriers, false turns or dead ends. They all have a centre or final point to move toward and away from.
